Chronos Cosmos: Deep Time, Open Space
August 14 @ 9:00 am - 8:30 pm
This magical multi-artist installation transforms Socrates Sculpture Park into a gateway to the universe, presenting artworks that consider space, time, and matter in relationship to celestial entities and earth-bound processes. In the open-air environment of the Long Island City waterfront park, works of varying scale put the universe in context, creating connection points to space and time. Participating artists include Radcliffe Bailey, Beatriz Cortez, Alicja Kwade, Eduardo Navarro, Heidi Neilson, and Oscar Santillán with new commissions by Miya Ando, William Lamson, and (MDR) Maria D. Rapicavoli.
In a collectively authored dynamic sculptural “book” project by artist Rafael Domenech, scaffolding and construction mesh, provisional materials emblematic of the changing urban landscape, comprise the two semicircular towers of an outdoor piece. The mesh “pages” hanging from the scaffolding feature graphically dynamic laser-cut texts that rotate throughout the exhibition.
